I got asked out a lot in Europe I have jet black hair, olive skin and dark eyes. I am not as gorgeous as Helena Christensen but in my experience white european men love exotic women, it is highly desirable.

It's city-data. This is the dumping ground for questions that would be too stupid and foolish to ask people in real life.

I agree.

I believe this myself too that it is a Greek and Southern Mediterranean (Iberia, Malta, Sicily, Cyprus, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco) trend.

I do not see it as exotic either especially for those areas just mentioned.

Black hair is indeed found more as you get closer to Turkey and North Africa and yes people get more darker.

People do associate black hair and brown eyes with Muslims but it is not just them but also certain Southern Europeans (such as Southwest French, Iberians, Maltese, Sicilians, Greeks, Cypriots etc)

Agreed and fixed.

Indeed.

It is not nothing to get too concerned about though.

Yes this is the type of place for some people who will end up asking these questions probably due to their lives and especially if they are from abroad.

In Europe, black hair with brown eyes combination ususally indicates/is seen as of southern European ancestry. However it appears all over Europe but is never the majority. The lowest percentage of it is in southern Scandinavia. Celtic people have high ratios of dark brown shades almost black, even in Ireland, black hair is in a small minority. Black hair is commonest in Portugal, southern Spain, southern Italy, Albania,Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey.

What differentiates people more is size, northern people are big, pale, wear creamy colours and are heavier and more cumbersome. French and Italians, I can't tell them apart except by their clothing.

Russians come in all shapes and you never know. Americans can be told apart because of their shrilling accents, you can hear them by miles.

Nope, sorry - black hair are not a common trait in Russians. Different shades of brown - yes, but black hair are very rare; for the most part when Russians have black hair it indicates that they are already mixed with other ethnicities.

Black hair and brown eyes is not exotic at all. Here, someone with 'nordic look' would be more exotic

Really? I think here it is the opposite, but always depending of the person of course.

About black hair and brown eyes are common in South Europe, France included, as people said, I have seen too many as well in Austria, Ireland, Hungary...

Red (or ginger) hair is exotic-looking here, but I'm in the wrong continent.
